“Crude sounds and a static build of noise can be interpreted in many ways. Aside from interpretations, you can hear these same characteristics in Bark_Torch’s latest release, “EYE”. But to own and to understand those interpretations, is Bark Torch’s main intent – they want you to experience just what you create as you listen and hear the sounds.
The focus of the album is reminiscent as an idea. The encouragement of the album is to realize how misunderstood nature really is. And the context of the album points towards mysticism. It’s a demonstration of ability and talent, expression and release, searching and believing.
As the album plays, the songs turn daunting, (menacing even.) With eery ringings, ‘found’ sounds, guitar samples and instrumental experimentation, Bark Torch creates a deep, obscure, and weird sound. And at times, the songs turn even more than a reflection, the listener stands alongside a character’s narration which invites them to join and experience the noise of the story. With Bark Torch’s first release, we are proud to bring to you the songs of “EYE” a mysterious sound-trip on Already Dead Tapes and Records.”
